Remember the movie, The Graduate? We had no idea where we were headed! – Lil


On Saturday April 27th at 3:00 p.m. the Program Plastics: What Can We Do Now? will take place at the Town Hall.  This event is offered by Planet A, the environmental committee of Fall Mountain Alliance.

The program will include a video from Keefe Harrison, the CEO of Recycling Partnership, of Walpole.  Other individuals from the Monadnock region will share their experiences and ideas for positive steps forward for our community and beyond.

Speakers include Paul Colburn, former Walpole Recycling Coordinator, Ben Hoy, current Walpole Recycling Coordinator, Erin Richardson of Recycling Partnership, and Marge Shepardson who has worked locally and at the state level to decrease and eliminate the use of plastic bags, straws, and single use plastic beverage containers.

Packaging alternatives to plastics will be displayed.  Student Posters on the topic of Plastics: What Can We Do Now? will be displayed throughout the hall.  

This event will conclude with a panel discussion and question and answer period.
